Presenting a rare and dazzling Persian miniature painting you will not find elsewhere. It is a handmade reproduction from the Haft Awrang of Jami from the poem “Rosary of the Pious”. This poem illustrates in elaborate settings the many morals of life.

The Haft Awrang is a compilation of seven masnavi poems and constitutes the major poetical work of Abdul-Rahman Jami (d. 1492) composed in the second half of the 15th century.

The artwork depicts the gift of ducks from a powerful monarch to a pious dervish. The monarch had became a pupil of the holy master in order to save his soul.  But the holy man refused the gifts for in his eyes meaningful gifts could only come from life long devotion.

The modern artist has executed the painting in minute delicacy with a marked attention to the dazzling melee of sufis, citizens and royalty, and some of the other objects common in Iranian art.

This is Persian style art at its finest. The handmade artwork has been brilliantly achieved with use of meticulous brushwork and fine watercolors, ink and gold.

And you have a chance right now to experience and add to your collection this historical Persian style artwork. Buy it now.
